Memories: Grand Opening

Newport Car Museum followed its Thursday opening with an evening party for the Hospitality Industry and a Saturday night party for VIPs and all who helped make the vision of the Newport Car Museum a reality.  

David Rose, a motorsports enthusiast, writer and race car driver from New York, summed up the fun in his Facebook posting:

“Last week the brand-new Newport Car Museum opened, and it’s fabulous…. I had the pleasure of attending the museum’s opening party and it was a blast…over 50 mid-century classic cars (mostly American) were set among period furniture items and automobile art. The evening was first class with outstanding food, cocktails and a Motown-themed band (how appropriate considering the Detroit iron on display) that was outstanding. They certainly know how to throw a party…. If you love cars you must visit this great museum…

    We had the pleasure of meeting Gunther and Maggie Buerman at the museum on Father’s day. They are an engaging couple who actually like to drive their cars – not just view them. Thanks for putting this outstanding collection together, and for the for the free tickets for dads!
